“Can’t wait to make more memories with you and watch you grow into the incredible person you are loved so much baby Kalamwa.”

Mulamwah, brimming with pride, hailed his son as the heir to his legacy. “God is great, finally our boy is here, the heir is here, the king is here,” he exclaimed.

“Welcome to the world my son, it’s the best feeling in the world to finally see and hold you. Can’t wait for us to grow and make memories together.”
